Lakewood, Colorado Speed Traps
Cruisers and SUV’s will sit west of Garrison hidden near the horse corral area (between the grove of trees) and catch folks coming home from work heading south on Garrison here near the park. Everyday between 7:30-9:00a and 4:30-6:00p (2 school zones just south of here)
There are the usual flashing light signs posted telling you if you’ve gone over 30 … and usually about a block PRIOR to the sign the cops sit in the side roads amongst the parked cars in front of houses and zap you as you go before you can slow down for the damned photo-installed sign. They also sit in those residential roads randomly all up and down 20th … go nice and slow because the Jeffco guys will get you harsh
Police will often sit on the south side of 1st Ave. somewhere between Harlan and Pierce they often ticket people going over the 30mph limit, but also also actively enforcing people going into the bike lane to get around turning traffic stopped in the middle of the road. They can been seen often in the evenings and even more so as the weather gets nice and more pedestrians are using the bike lane. DO not use the bike lane as a "passing" lane.
Just south of Kipling and Florida, the Lakewood police department regularly places one to two patrol cars in the grassy median of Kipling Boulevard. When approaching from south of Kipling and Florida, the cars are not immediately visible until you round the curve, and that is where they speed-check northbound traffic. Enforcement is also conducted on southbound traffic from the same location. Trap can be up anytime of the day or night, sometimes one but normally two marked patrol cars.
On Eastbound 285, 1/4 mi after the speed limit drops from 65 to 55, around a slight bend, two cop cars sit and catch people who haven’t slowed down yet.
